Since the 1960s,
Hanne Darboven has focused her art-making on daily "writings"
that chronicle existence and evoke the passage of time. The 2,782 typed
and hand-written daily writings or drawings that make up Leben, leben/Life,
living represent Darboven’s systematic approach to counting the years
1900 to 1999. These drawings make visible two orders of time: the actual
time taken to create them and the historical time that they summarize.
Darboven asserts the presentness of time by marking its passage in a
literal form that also takes up volumetric space when the writings are
installed in a large gallery.
The work also includes two dollhouses that
are part of Darboven’s extensive collection of popular artifacts. The
houses, photos of which are included in the installation, also mark time
as one represents a nineteenth-century German home and the other a house
from the 1950s.
